We rented the entire manner and Bungalo’s from Thursday through Sunday. We had a spectacular wedding weekend. Montana was absolutely wonderful at the manner and all of the support staff was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this as a gorgeous turn-of-the-century venue with the added extra of a vintage small town on the beautiful Pungo river.

River Forest Manor & Marina is the perfect location for a getaway wedding! They treated myself and family like royalty. Everything was thoughtfully arranged and beautifully executed. I would highly recommend them! The experience we had with River Forest Manor & Marina ultimately set the precedence for a long, happy, and loving marriage. The team was a true blessing and easily accessible throughout the weekend.
